I love Jerry's voice on this one.

Actually, this show has really grown on me over time. Friend of the Devil is lovely.

I just LOVE these over-achieving early 80's first set closers - Looks Like Rain, Big RR Blues AND Let It Grow. DP #13 5/06/1981, is similar with its Looks Like Rain, Big Railroad Blues, Let It Grow-> Deal.

It would only be a few years before they decided that just one of these songs was enough to close the first set.

Agree with you about Jerry's voice on both Hartford shows - strong and sweet.

I can promise you that this stuff comes from memory, because we were sitting next to and slightly behind the stage, watching the band for the entire second set (the gf wanted off that floor after set 1!).

Jerry starts to drop into the "Playin' reprise" at the end of Black Peter before being rather forcefully cut off by Bobby chopping the Sugar Magnolia chords. Jerry looks up in amused surprise, but it only takes a few seconds for everyone to drop in line. Then when Bobby finishes the main part of the song, the rest of the band is looking at him, again with amusement, as though they have no idea what's coming next. He's shouting at one, and then the next, and 10-15 second later they start "playin" for real. It was pretty amusing, and, again no doubt reinforced by the fact that I was listening to it on tape almost immediately after seeing it.

That's funny. Bobby seems in a funny mood the whole show.
